A Little H2O Feature
The Water in the desert, is better known as Acqua California Bistro. Located at the River in Rancho Mirage, it has a Happy Hour every day from 11 am to closing, in the bar area only. And oh, what a view!
The food menu is varied, from Beer Battered Fish Tacos to Pastas, to Salads and Seafood to Daniela’s favorite (she works there) , the Chicken Sandwich. The chef is Raphael Quintana and he’s producing some works of art from the kitchen. The beverage manager Chris Bluhm is drumming up some tasty tropical libations and keeping us chill in the desert, while providing reccomendations for wine and food pairings.
If you don’t want to cozy up to the bar, try the award winning 3 course feast, 3-5pm, $16.99 and 11am to closing, $19.99 you’ll really get your money’s worth.
Last year at the River, there was a temporary ice rink out in the front that created an extra warm Holiday feeling as lovers attempted to skate to Christmas tunes. Let’s hope they bring the rink back again this year.
